For sore of teeth, and if they wag, take the same wort; it out of some wonderlike virtue will help; its ooze and its dust is to be preserved in winter, since it does not appear at every time; its ooze thou shalt hold in a rams horn; dry also the dust, and keep it. Verily, also, it sharply benefits towards the same use, swallowed with wine. 4. For fast (costive) inwards, to stir them, take the juice of this same wort; give it to drink by the might, which each one may (according to a mans strength), through itself without danger, it purges wonderfully the inwards. 5.
